Everyone experiences stress and its effects.
Short-term effects of stress include headaches, shallow breathing, difficulty sleeping, anxiety and upset stomach. Long-term chronic stress can increase the risk for heart disease, back pain, depression, persistent muscle aches and pains, and a weakened immune system. Chronic stress can also affect your emotions and behavior by making you irritable, impatient, less enthusiastic about your job and even depressed.
